The "Generator Oak" this tree holds our 2012 height growth record. We were able to grow a 18" seedling to a 10 Foot Tall Sapling in only one growing season!

Toxey discovered this hybrid between Shumard oak and willow oak in a planting of willow oaks when he noticed it was much bigger than the rest of the surrounding trees. Upon closer inspection, the little leaves had jagged margins kinda like a sawtooth or chinkapin oak.  Fast forward several years- the tree’s super growth rate hasn’t changed and routinely generates WAY more acorns every year than the surrounding oaks…hence its nickname “the Generator.” It also is highly prized by the wildlife.  One interesting thing we noticed with this hybrid red is that squirrels dine on the acorns immediately after falling, instead of hauling them off to a cache. This is common with the white oak group, but squirrels normally reserve reds for later after losing some bitterness. The acorns are bigger than a willow oak’s and smaller than a Shumard oak’s, making them just about perfect for all of our favorite wildlife species.  In a hurry???,  the rapid mast seedlings from the Generator oak grow VERY fast and will routinely hit the 6-8 foot mark their first year when paired with your best dirt, a tree tube and proper care.   Like some of the other fast growing reds such as Nuttall and Shumard oak, 6-8 years to acorns isn’t unheard of if you do it right.

Native nursery has by far the best trees at a fair price. that said, shuwillows ordered in 2020 had nice jagged edges. the ones ordered in 2021 looked more like plain willow oaks with very little jagged edges, if at all

Love these trees

I have now ordered from Nativ Nurseries two springs in a row and am very pleased with the trees, and how well they are doing. The staff was great to deal with. So I’m a few years hope to see lots of acorns

Just like to say I've watched Mossy Oak hunting shows since the beginning and still do to this day.
It was no suprise the trees I received were just what I expected from Nativ Nurseries. That's why I ordered more and I'll order more next year. Thanks for a great product and God bless you folks.

Disappointed

I thought the seedlings should have been a foot taller. Not impressed

The seedlings are coming out of a dormant period. Respectfully, if you follow our protocol on our YouTube videos we are confident your seedlings will surprise you. If not, let us know!
